Accounts payable automation 2/5: Step-by-step


Considerations when planning your implementation.

  • Document your business requirements and invoice flows
  • Categorize your suppliers: focus on volume and invoice flow
  • Make sure you have digital reception organized – it is your firewall!
  • Focus on standards and select a service provider to enforce these
  • Publish your digital capabilities, such as in the Peppol directory

Implementation should be phased: focus on 100% dematerialization first and gradually add  additional automation flows. Make sure integration with your back-office is streamlined: identify missing gaps.
